To those who didn't enjoy this record: stop being so judgemental, if you're looking for perfection in metal you have picked the wrong place, Bach(baroque composer) was perfect, listen to his stuff, and stop bitching.

1. Unable to appreciate any forms of artworks by giving his own judgements is a moron.
2. Mentioning Bach on metal website is an idiot.
3. Considered other people's opinions as bitching is a fool.
4. People have expressed their negative concerns but still asking people to "listen to his stuff" is a geek.
Ther're Moron, Idiot, Fool and Geek live inside you !

I don't what you are sir other than angry, and boy does that make me giggle. If you think you are so brilliant, who am I to disagree, "Seek and destroy", well done sir. As for Bach, I have one question to ask you, do you know Yngwie J. Malmasteen? If that guy's metal then Bach is metal too. I wouldn't even bother to offend you, you do that yourself so well.

I really don't get your point. All the idea of writing here is to exchange opinions. All kinds.

Are you saying that ''not being Bach'' is an excuse for DT to create a poor album? I'm not looking for perfection, I'm looking for a fucking good prog metal album from DT, like they succeeded to make so many times. This time though, it's nearly repulsive.

Do you really hate it that much to call it repulsive? In my opinion it's not that bad. I really like the album. It's way better than ADTOE and has some really good songs (False Awakening Suite, The Enemy Inside, Enigma Machine, Illumination Theory). The other songs are not that bad, but didn't really get stuck in my head as these songs did. I agree on the fact that it's not their best album and that there far better prog releases this year (JOLLY, Haken, Persefone and tomorrow the new Ayreon). But to call it repulsive is a little to far for me
But hey! Everyone has their opinion

To be honest, I've seen this year as the year of prog. I mean, not only did we get these epic albums you mentioned, but also things like Leprous and newcomers Fright Pig releasing absolutely beautiful albums... I don't think I've been able to give a single prog album a rating under a 7 so far this year, and there have been A LOT of albums!
Mountain King - 24.10.2013 at 22:01  
  I'll give it a 7. The album before this one was better. It had like 3 really great songs. This one has solid songs just nothing so beautiful but "Illumination Theory" seems like a grower and the instrumental "The Enigma Machine" is great...

Damn how could I forget the awesome 'Coal' by Leprous ?! Yeah there are not many prog albums that can be rated under a 7 or 6 this year. Even RIverside made a solid record with SONGS. It's a good year for prog metal

Fair enough! If you can still find good prog metal, go ahead and enjoy them, don't let what fails to please you, eat you up.

Rating: 7 This album doesn't hold up as much as it did when I first heard it (largely blame that on my roommate for blasting the same songs over and over through the walls). Still consistent and solid, but doesn't really grab me after multiple listens.

Pfff. You should thank God that you have a roommate that blasts Dream Theater, instead of all the shit most of my friends listen to
